Customer Reviews of the Curby® Mini-Taper

Finally, an alternative to using plastic packing tape on our packages! Our new tape dispenser is extremely easy to use, it’s efficient and we use a lot less tape material. I love that it’s in one designated spot in our front check out area. I will not miss using plastic tape and the frustration of tape guns gone missing.

Now that we switched from plastic tape to water-activated tape, we use it on every package we ship. It’s better quality material than plastic tape and our packages are much safer. A bonus is that we now use less tape material which is better for the environment.

We have been using this little taper for 3 months and couldn’t be happier. It’s convenient, easy-to-use and it looks nice on the table-top behind our cash registers. This was an absolute upgrade switching from plastic tape to water-activated tape to seal our boxes…they look so fancy and professional!
